Investing.com – Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is once again the world's most value company, ahead of Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), as shares rose Monday.

  • Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), up 0.14%, had a market capitalization of $1.069 trillion, overtaking Microsoft's market cap of $1.068 trillion. Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) was up 0.15%.
  • Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) was the world's most valuable company until the fourth-quarter 2018 slump knocked its stock price down 30% amid worries about slumping sales of its iPhone, by far its biggest revenue source.
  • The shares are up 50% this year, thanks to big gains in the first and third quarters and a 5.7% gain so far this month. The gains have been fueled by the positive reception of its newest iPhone models and strong results from other products, including its Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) store. It's also planning to start a streaming service.
  • Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) is up nearly 38% this year, building on the success of its cloud-computing offerings and related back-office software, its Surface family of notebooks and tablets and the popularity of its Office programs.

    We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

    • Enrich the conversation
    • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.

    •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
    • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
